(NHL) Kings take 3-0 lead in finals
(06-10 11:13)

Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick had his best game of the NHL finals, making 32 saves to put the Kings on the cusp of another Stanley Cup with a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 3 on Monday night.
Los Angeles escaped with two overtime wins at home and then took complete command inside Madison Square Garden to take a 3-0 series lead.
The Kings took their first lead of the series with Jeff Carter's goal in the final second of the first period and then stretched the edge to three goals in the second -- something the Rangers failed to do in California.
New York is facing elimination Wednesday night in Game 4.
While there has been only one comeback from a 3-0 deficit in the finals, the Kings erased such a deficit in the first round against San Jose. --AP
